I could give you tons of well established, very upscale hotel spots but it doesn't sound like you want anything to stuffy. Look into the Hotel Gansevoort. It's in the Meatpacking District but since it sounds like you may want a trendy/happening/wannabe (no offense intended to you) spot (although meatpacking has peaked & can be extremely pretentious it still has its good nights and spots). There's a new Japanese restaurant, Ono in the hotel and it's across the street from Spice Market, which gets packed even at 7:00. There are tons of clubs in the area, but you are too young for most and some places have a very strict door even if you are of age, especially for men. Juillard is a bit far (Lincoln Center area) but quite easy to get to via the express A train from 14th and 8th (one block away from the hotel). Of course you can always cab it. The new Ferragamo flagship is on 5th avenue in Midtown (I think 53rd st). There's a Ferragamo store in Soho as well, no sure if it closed already....Givenchy is on Madison and 63rd....I'd suggest you check out the Co-op floor (5) at Barneys as well if that interests you.
No, that's exactly what I do not want. Hotels like The W are really not my cup of tea. I don't care about where people get their money from, but the characature "nouveau riche" alpha male (Regis look down to a tee) that frequents those places makes my blood boil. I'm inclined not to take on The Pierre for the simple reason that their clientel is invariably older and less tolerant of younger folks like myself. It isn't uncommon for us to bring back people to our room at 2am. Though we aren't very disruptive I'd imagine a mouse fart would piss off the patrons at the pierre.

PHV, I don't see think you need to worry about the happiness of other people living there, or whether they approve of what you do or not, as long as you're not obviously disrupting their stay.

Did someone mention hoes and cheap beer? Cans of PBR, stale beer, and free boobies on the bar after a couple of pitchers... The Village Idiot on 14th St. and 9th Ave.

hopefully not. We sometimes get very very rowdy though. Ok, so which of the grand hotels are close to all the action? Like I say, Ferragamo and Givenchy are priorities for me. I'd also very much like to visit Kiton. Also, what is Filine's basement? Is it the place where you can get great bargains? I wouldn't mind picking up a few nice garments at low prices.

I second the 4 Seasons recommendation. Great location--T&A across the street, Brioni next door, Kiton, Vacca, Bergdorf a few blocks away--and tremendous service. Last time I was there I got very ill, chills, fever, etc. Turns out I had strep throat. The concierge arranged for a doctor to visit my room (I can't even get my own doctor to make house calls), got me the required medication, and it wasn't a bad place to spend a couple of days to recuperate. One caution--don't forget to add city and state occupancy tax to the room rate. I forget what the taxes are in New York, but it always seems that a $500 a night room is really a $550+ a night room.

Too bad it closed a few months ago.... I'm going to miss that place. I'm not sure you can find $5 pitchers anywhere else in Manhattan.
